Head out to explore Coral Gardens Reef, a biologically rich coral reef popular with snorkelers. Located in a national park, the reef stretches out 32.5 m (350 ft) from the coast and can be easily accessed from the eastern end of the main beach. The reef supports a large array of small fish and a few heftier sea creatures, such as turtles, rays, and barracudas. The actions of some snorkelers have forced a decline in the delicate ecosystem in recent years; make sure to leave everything where it is and don't touch the coral or fish.

Excellent location on Grace Bay. Somewhere Cafe very good. Reef for snorkelling in front of resort. All staff are professional and very helpful.
A great "family friendly" reef; there's plenty of wildlife to see in a relatively small area, making it very easy for children to do without wearing themselves out. It's in a great location to where once you're done with the reef, you can still enjoy a prestine beach.
